The fire gutted the building which has been closed for many years.

The centre - which sits opposite a Co-op store close to Victoria Hospital - was previously the Dunnikier Old Mens’ Club and latterly the OAP Centre.

It was once home to a number of local groups and activities before being sold in 2018.

A Scottish Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson said: “We were alerted at 6:45pm on Wednesday, May 18, to reports of a building on fire at Lauder Road, Kirkcaldy.

“Operations Control mobilised two fire appliances and firefighters extinguished a fire affecting a single storey derelict building.

Fire crews tackled the blaze last night.

“There were no reported casualties and crews left after ensuring the area was made safe.”
